Creating great photographs in a busy environment can seem intimidating, but this workshop gives you strategies for shooting well and quickly. Centering on the public activities in a busy Boston area, this class introduces composition and technical methods for photographing interesting moments in fast-paced environments. Technically this workshop focuses on how to use and control shutter speed to freeze and blur motion intentionally. The skills from this workshop can also be applied to photographing family gatherings or your pets or when you’re on the go traveling.

Students must bring their own DSLR camera with manual settings and are responsible for providing their own materials. View the supply list.

About the Instructor

Georgie Friedman received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in conjunction with Tufts University (‘08) and her BA from University of California, Santa Cruz (‘96). Georgie's exhibition at the MFA, "Fragments of Antarctica," features work she created as a result from her SMFA at Tufts Traveling Fellowship to Antarctica, on view through September 15, 2019. She has also exhibited at the Geneva International Film Festival, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Peabody Essex Museum, among others. She teaches a variety of photography and video-based classes at several local institutions, including Boston College and MassArt, and she was one of the first Artists-in-Residence with the City of Boston. Her photographic works and experiential video installations explore the relationship between uncontrollable natural phenomena and our natural, built, and digital environments.
